There is something about making an object miniature. Shrinking items down to teeny-tiny proportions makes them precious, more cherished . . .

There is also something to be said for scaling up an every day object. To take something ordinary and blow it up giant-sized is to make one look at the object in a completely different way. Comical? Grand? Breath-taking? I guess it all depends . . .
